People live in systems. We come from families and form new ones. We have friends, we are surrounded by peers and colleagues. In a greater context, we live in a society and in a culture, sometimes in a society that is a combination of come cultures. We hold a religious view, or we hold a non-religious view. Those are all systems. Some of them are based on human relationships, some on relationships with values or ideas; however, they are all systems. Marriage and family therapists are trained to think in a systemic way and always consider context – even when we engage in individual therapy. It’s a unique point of view that takes the bigger picture of your life into account and aims for a result that will best serve your life’s ecology.
